Size: 22 stories, 92 condos
Prices: $995,000 to $11.9 million
Extell's new project at 70 Charlton Street, between Varick and Hudson streets, holds the distinction of being the first new residential project to break ground in Hudson Square since the neighborhoodwhich the development is trying to rename West Sohowas rezoned in 2013, which means it will be interesting to see how well sales go (it's directly beside a Four Points Sheraton and around the corner from a Courtyard Marriott, so the neighbors aren't exactly the most desirable choices for buyers of high-end condos). Sales have officially launched, and the least expensive unit is a $995,000 one-bedroom on the second floor. It is the only apartment currently available that's less than $1 million.
The website shows listings for one-, two-, and three-bedroom condos, as well as "the terrace collection" and penthouses. There's a 2,486-square-foot four-bedroom with a 510-square-foot terrace asking $7.1 million, and the most expensive condo right now is PHD, a 3,193-square-foot apartment with a huge 2,150-square-foot rooftop terrace on the market for $11.9 million.
The building sets itself apart from most new developments by eschewing a glass facade for brick, and the industrial look suits the location. The interiors feature oak floors, Miele appliances, Ceasarstone counters, and marble bathrooms. Workshop/APD create two looks for the kitchens: "polished," with white lacquered cabinetry or "natural," with stained wood cabinetry.
The building wraps around a courtyard with a water feature, and there is a 60-foot saltwater pool, outdoor sports court, and steam room.
